Any ideas on how to fill those pesky nail holes? We're
talking about pre-painted trim, and how to clear up the
blemishes left during installation.

If you like puzzles, check out this thread at the Cabinet

centers on how to install crown moulding when you're
dealing with radiused corners.

This thread at the Cabinetmaking Forum considers the sleek
and stylish arched toe kick, including straight radius,
ellipse and French arch. If you've got design ideas or
images to share, please join the discussion:

''Playing with fire'' and ''flirting with disaster'' are two
phrases that appear in the very first posts of this
thread. The fear is over finishing in an enclosed,
unventilated area - the client's home.

warp? Perhaps the schedule for fan reversal in CRT
(Constantly Rising Temperature) drying is at fault...
